We welcome all patients seeking extraordinary health and wishing to improve their quality of life!


Atlas Orthogonal

Atlas Orthogonal is a gentle, effective and state-of-the-art spinal correction procedure that uses percussive sound waves to correct the 1st bone of the spine - the atlas. It removes brainstem pressure, helps restore body balance and reactivates the body's natural healing ability. No manipulation (twisting or cracking) is ever employed or needed. Each patient's correction is tailored to them and no two corrections are the same. Learn more about Atlas Orthogonal and the other gentle chiropractic techniques offered at Balanced Atlas below.



Will my neck be twisted and "popped/cracked"?

No. The Atlas Orthogonal technique is very gentle and safe. Over rotation (twisting) of the neck may cause injury or further misalignment of the atlas/axis. Dr. Saggau's methods require such light touches to the neck that patients who experienced forceful manipulation as part of past treatments find it hard to believe anything effective has been accomplished. But, their doubts vanish as quickly as their pain and discomfort.

How often do I need to get adjusted?

It depends on your case. Some patients may notice improvements within the first couple weeks of treatment. Relief of symptoms may take longer for patients that have been experiencing their pain for long periods of time.

If I'm pregnant, can I get an Atlas Orthogonal adjustment?

Yes, if you have previous/existing AO x-rays. If you do not, an AO adjustment cannot be received. Dr. Saggau can, however, provide other full spine, gentle adjusting techniques.
